Self-proclaimed Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) Interim Secretary General Sengezo Tshabangu has distanced himself from a statement circulating on social media platforms purportedly announcing the expulsion of the party’s president Nelson Chamisa.

Tshabangu recently recalled 15 CCC MPs claiming that they had ceased to be members of the party.

On Tuesday, 10 October, a statement purportedly signed by Tshabangu surfaced on social media announcing Chamisa’s expulsion from the party he formed just over a year ago.

The statement stated that Chamisa had been dismissed from CCC “with immediate effect for “personalising the party as well as his continued gross disregard of the party constitution amongst other issues including embezzlement of party funds.”

However, when CITE reached out to him for comment, Tshabangu dismissed the expulsion statement as fake.
